HEAR YE! HEAR  YE!

One year ago, on January 4, 2010, there was created here a Revolutionary Concept!

A special corner of the Planet was discovered — or we might say — created.

The corner known in some circles as TOOT! (Otherwise known as Time Out for Off Topic)

365 Days ago –  little did we know –  HISTORY was being made. BITOHISTORY, that is.

For it was none other than HE– Our Bito — who created the most successful conversational nook in the entire INTERTUBES!!

13,000 plus posts later, we gather here, lift our beer mugs high, and celebrate the man who gave us our own Planetary Pub, the Townhall of Togetherness … TOOT!

We thank you for the many laughs, the great links, the fabulous conversation starters, the pats on the back and the day to day support, tech assistance and graciousness you’ve faithfully supplied. CONGRATULATIONS, B’ITO!

Final note: DON’T YOU EVER GET SICK, AGAIN!!  (Please?)

Can I just say, I feel like a dope not recognizing till now that we could nickname Time Out for OT, “TOOT”?

In any case, I love it!

Ah, and what a fine baptismal name.
Q: “And what will this child be named?”
A: ” It will be known as ‘TOOT’.”

I know!

Here I took the time to download the youbtubes, to make sure it was just the right message – and here I thought that I was doing a good thing to pay homage to a person that I love so much.

Love you, B’ito

Sorry I’m so late for the party folks, is there any champagne left or should I start on the dishes?

Lovely post kes, said everything to be said with tons of warmth, respect, and love, a joy to read.

Would someone take a look under the counter please, I can’t reach from over here. Need a glassful to congratulate our man bito again before I tackle the trash.

Cheers bito!
